Police warn friends, family of Auburn shooting victims of retaliation

AUBURN, Wash. - The murder of three men in Auburn was still unsolved on Monday, and police were telling family and friends to keep a low profile.

"In terms of retaliation, we have heard just through social media that there might be some retaliation," sai Cmdr. Mike Hirman of the Auburn Police Department.

Friends of one of the victims, Nick Lindsay, canceled a fundraiser called "Fit for Nick" because of the threats.

The Facebook invite page explained, "... there is a potential threat of 'retaliation' we have to cancel the event tomorrow. We cannot risk putting people in danger. The point of this peaceful event was to raise money for Nicholas Lindsay's family during these trying times."

"I think retaliation is very real and maybe private events might be the way to go," Hirman said. "If there's going to be retaliation, it's likely it's going to be outside the city because you know that's where everybody else is from."

Lindsay was killed along with Antuan Greer and Lorenzo Duncan early on Easter morning in front of the Sports Page Tavern in Auburn.

Police are still looking for the suspected killers.

A fourth man was shot that night, and he was still at Harborview Medical Center on Monday. Police said he was a person of interest and not a suspect.

Members of the victims' families did not want to go on camera with KIRO 7 Eyewitness News because of fear of retaliation. They said they are desperate for officers to catch the suspects.
